Apparently this is week 26. Now I did start late into the year. But I also am not set in a rythym where I’m managing to do this each and every week. So why bother, right? Well I think these are kind of fun, and as I have not been posting much of anything as of late I figure better inconsistent SYW than nothing… so here goes :)
In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?
Well this is an open ended question for me as it really depends on a bunch of factors. Who am I with? Where am I going? What car/vehicle am I driving? These all affect whether I am comfortable driving or preferring to just chillax in the passengers seat.
I am finding that I like driving more than I used to, but in the same breathe I get super anxious driving where I’ve never been, or in extreme traffic. I also know that not all cars drive the same, some you can hop into and just go, and some… well you want to get used them.
And don’t get me started on the who I’m with part… you all know what I’m talking about right?
If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
I think I probably would go. Of course there are factors to be taken into account like where is this Opera? When is this Opera. I have never seen a live Opera but I have been to a few musicals. I think it would be a very powerful experience.
Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not necessarily have to be a sentence.)
Seven words or less… EEPS!
Always love, be kind, show compassion, and stand tall.
Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?
I’m gonna say door # 1! I think a contented (but not quite happy) life without any ‘swings’ sounds especially dull. On the other hand “joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure” sounds amazing to me. Upon reflection I am thinking that perhaps I already have that and just need to adjust my attitude a bit?
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Hhhmmm, Last week was one of the toughest weeks financially I have had in a very long time, so I’m gonna say I’m thankful it’s over.I am also thankful that my eldest turned 25, and she has become an amazing woman right before my eyes. And I babysat my grandbabies on Saturday, which is bittersweet. They were very good for me although a bit crazy (3 year olds are insane!) But I am very allergic to the family pets and so I suffer for days afterward with itchy eyes and stuffy nose, you know the drill I’m sure. Which is why I’m grateful that my daughter finished her course and I don’t have to babysit at their house again for a bit.
This week I am thankful that Wednesday is Canada Day meaning a stat holiday, AND it is my 6th anniversary for becoming single and starting on the road toward finding me. Also Friday is Payday!!! woohoo!
